Just your average murderous crime family

Hillary In a move that underscores the importance (I guess) of new media in presidential politics, Hillary Clinton spoofs the Sopranos finale in a new Web video that introduces her new campaign theme song. The mob saga closed with Tony Soprano playing Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’ ” on a diner jukebox. I prefer Night Ranger. Anyway, in the campaign clip, Bill and Hillary trade some quips, and Celine Dion’s “You and I” is revealed as the song. Dion is Canadian, so Republicans have complained about “outsourcing.” I don’t think that has much traction as a put-down. A hearty “That song sucks!” from Rudy would work wonders. Consider: Someone in Clinton’s camp thought equating Hillary with a psychopathic, murderous crime boss would soften her image. Better than the Big Brother comparisons, I suppose. Night Ranger’s “Sister Christian” was the big song at my high-school prom. Some campaigner should snap it up. Maybe Pat Buchanan, if he heeds the cries of millions (in his head) and decides to run again. Or even Dennis Kucinich, who ignored the cries of a half-dozen real people (those who remembered him from last time) and ran again anyway. And no, I didn’t go to my prom. Thanks for bringing that up—some scars don’t heal, ok?
